Yoga Retreat In Mauritius

Nowadays, Yoga is the most widely accepted ancient healing practice. We are delighted to see millions of people introduced to this timeless art in gym’s around the world, and yet, we are dismayed that many are not teaching Yoga in its truest form. Yoga is not a fad. It is not a new way of keeping fit. It is not something to brag about.

Instead, Yoga is virtuous and pure. It is a philosophy; a personal journey one takes to find their true self, and a way to connect with the universal life force and feel at one with it.

Drawing from the asanas (poses) in different schools of yoga, our practitioners will create a tailor-made program aligned with your life force which you can practice even after leaving the sanctuary.

Ayurveda

Ayurveda is the Sacred Knowledge of Life. Developed over millennia, it is a complete philosophy regarding health and wellbeing, and its health benefits are backed by scientific evidence. Hospitals dedicated to Ayurveda are operating in India and many parts of the world- curing diseases of modern civilization -obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, arthritis and joint and degenerative bone diseases

Developed over 3000  years ago, Shirodhara is, to this day, the best natural treatment to reduce stress and re-establish healthy sleeping patterns. This relaxing therapy is carried out by pouring essentials oils on the head (Shiro) to improve the flow (dhara) of life force in you. Shirodhara treatment is proven to treat the following:

  1. Sleep disorders including insomnia, Shift Work Sleep Disorder (SWSD) and jet lag
  2. Hypertension
  3. Depression and anxiety
  4. Chronic migraine
  5. Scalp health and hair loss
  6. Chronic stress
  7. Troubled dreams and  agitated sleep

Scientifically proven to rebalance the nervous activity of the right and left brain hemispheres and to release natural neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and melatonin, we guarantee you will begin to feel the stress-busting effect of Shirodhara after one session only.

By its very nature, Shirodhara is designed to cater to your body type (dosha). As such, our therapists will use oils which resonate with your particular dosha to unleash the full effects of the treatment. We invite you to discuss with your doctor or therapist about your experience and expectations as the program unfolds.

Meditation and Mindfulness

IMG_09291 copy (1)

Stress is now widely recognized as a major cause of disease including heart attacks, obesity, migraine, asthma, and cancer. Unfortunately, our fast-paced lives expose us to stress on a daily basis and without a proper way to cope, many find temporary relief in harmful practices such as smoking, drug abuse, overeating and work addiction.  If you find yourself in this situation, you have the means to break the cycle. For too long, we have ignored the importance of a mind free of clutter and stress.  At Les Mariannes Wellness Sanctuary, we believe that regular meditation and mindfulness practice is as essential to health as regular exercise.

Backed by science and recommended by doctors around the world, the rediscovery of meditation as an essential component of our lifestyle is one of the greatest medical breakthroughs of the 21st Century. Here is a list of some of its benefits:

  1. Reduces stress and controls anxiety
  2. Improves your outlook on life and self awareness
  3. Helps to improve your sleep patterns
  4. Improves your attention span
  5. Helps manage chronic pain
  6. Helps fight addiction
  7. Generates more positive emotions and empathy

At Les Mariannes Wellness Sanctuary, we can teach you how to free yourself of negative thoughts and instead, attract positivity and wellbeing by grounding your thoughts in the present moment. Our meditation practices are designed for individuals with fast-paced lifestyles and will serve you well in any high-stress situation you may find yourself in after leaving the sanctuary.
